my grandma’s apple cake recipe

My favorite family recipe (next to the family spaghetti sauce) is this cake. Anything with cream cheese frosting is typically a win in my book, but when paired with this super easy to make warm spiced apple cake – uh – it just makes me love fall so much more. Plus it gives you something to make with all those apples you just picked!

What you need for the cake:

  • 4 cups chopped apples
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable or canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

What you need for the frosting:

  • 1/4 cup of butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

In a mixing bowl or with your kitchen aid mixer combine the apples, sugar, eggs, oil, vanilla and walnuts – mix together and then add the flour, baking soda and cinnamon.

Place in a greased cake sheet pan and bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Once the cake is out and cooled, whip the frosting together with either a hand mixer or in your kitchen aid. Frost and enjoy!
